Casper College basketball players Rashaun Agee and Gus Wright have signed their letters of intent to play basketball at a four-year school.

Agee, a 6’7” forward, signed to play ball at Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. Wright, a 6’7” forward, will play for Dickinson State University in Dickinson, North Dakota.

Agee came to the T-Birds as a transfer from New Mexico State University. Originally from Chicago, Agee was a standout at Bogan High School. During his one season at CC, Agee averaged 20.1 pts per game and 11.5 rebounds. He has been named to the All-Region First Team, All-Tournament team, and is an All-American nominee.

“Rashaun is one of the more all-around productive players we have seen here at Casper. He gave effort every day and really has grown during his time with us here. I am proud of what he has become and his next step in his academic and basketball journey,” said Shaun Gutting, Thunderbird men’s head coach. The Division I Falcons play in the Mid-American Conference East Division.

Wright is signing with Dickinson State University in Dickinson, North Dakota. Dickinson State is an NAIA institution that competes in the North Star Athletic Association Conference. Wright transferred to Casper College from Colorado State-Pueblo. Wright was a major key to multiple wins for the T-Birds during the 2021-2022 season coming off the bench and producing. Wright is from Sheridan and played high school basketball at Sheridan High School.

“Gus was a major part of a lot of wins for us this year. He came in off the bench ready to go on multiple occasions, and he affected the game positively for us in each of them. He is going into a great situation where he can be a key player for the Blue Hawks. I am looking forward to seeing him only get better and better at the next level,” Gutting said.

The Casper College Men’s Basketball team ended the season 17-13 under Gutting and Lester Stewart, assistant coach.
